Mine is production date 10/2018 and it's still good for 25+ minutes flight time. It has about 20 charging cycles.


I ask because DJI has apparently stopped producing these batteries and I'm wondering how long I can use this expensive equipment including SC before it goes in the trash can due to the inaccessibility of the batteries.

I still have a couple of newer ones.

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. Hope that you could get the best recommendation from our fellow DJI Pilots here in the forum. Please note that using and charging the battery in a proper way will greatly extend its battery life. You may click the link below for your copy of the Intelligent battery safety guidelines. Thank you for your valued support.

I think the batteries are good for uptown 200 charge cycles.  I have seen people use them for longer if properly maintained. When I sold my drone, my battery charges were at between 110 to 150. I had 5 batteries.

Mine is 3 years old and I bought it last year on eBay used...to my delight! I am 74years old. Sometimes the best things are not new ;-)


Might be good news. At least a few companies haves taken this issue to the bank. The cells inside the M2 battery are generic and can be replaced somewhat easily (not impossible;-) As long as the electronics inside survive, it can be theoretically rebuilt forever.
I took one of my M2p batteries apart. A no-brainer for a skilled tech.

You can still buy the batteries,  you just have to get the ones for the Mavic 2 EA at a premium and then downgrade the firmware the first time you insert them into the drone.
